COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Andechser Weissbier Hefetrb.

When summer is on the way and the days invite you to swim, ramble, climb, or simply enjoy the outdoors, you will discover that an Andechser Weissbier Hell is just the right thing to quench your thirst. Since Saint Josephs Day on 19 March 1993, Andechs Weissbier Hell has found many new friends. Untreated and bottled in its natural state of yeasty turbidity, this is a top fermented beer for the epicure. Its light honey colour makes it an immediate eyecatcher. Then theres the opalescence and fine structure of the yeast turbidity. At the same time, the creamy, fine pored head invites you to get to know this light Weissbier from the Holy Mountain. Youll need two takes to enjoy the aromas to the full. First, distinctive fruity aromas like banana and honeydew melon come to the fore, followed by fine cloves. Andechser Weissbier Hell is a very tangy, refreshing treat with the conviction of a full, soft body. It concludes on a finely balanced interplay of light sweet honey and a delicate acidity with undertones of bitter hoppiness that quickly subside into a harmonious aftertaste. A Weissbier that embodies a slice of the Andechs lifestyle: finely yeasty, tangy, and sparkling, it refreshes and renews the thirst for more (original extract: 12.5%; abv: 5.5%).

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAY 9, 2012
Cloudy yellow/orange with a fluffy light tan head. Beautiful yeast, fresh wheat, with orange, lemon, a hint of clove, and banana in the aroma. Most interesting for me is the abundant pear bubblegum note. Lightly sweet, but has a faint lemon tartness to balance everything perfectly. Medium light body, active but creamy carb, with just a whisper of hop bitterness in the finish. Fantastic, old-school, German hefe. Definitely one of my favorites.

jackl (7565) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Draft. Classic hazy golden orange color with a big white head. The nose is predictable - banana, clove, spring water and light fruits. The taste is standard hefeweizen. More banana, rainwater, wheat. The body is light and easy. Prickly carbonation. Quite decent, uncontroversial.

MrHangover (4352) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy, light golden colour with a beautifull, white head that buidls above the rim of the glass. Awesome. Good carbonation going on in the glass. Aroma of banana and vanilla and little bit of citrus too. Not as much as a witbier, but I think I did detect something. Flavour is light on the palate, refreshing and easy drinkable. Quite sweet, but subtle and really bringing the wheat forward. Well balanced and a good hefe weizen.

JaKeAFC (1096) - ITALY - APR 13, 2012
50cl bottle, 5.5%, 1.50 one week past best before date. Light orange colour, of course cloudy. Nice compact white head. Strong weissbier smell. Classic hefeweizen: fruity and citrusy with some spicy notes and a consistent sweet malts backbone with yeast. A correct bitterness in the finish too. Taste is balanced and crisp. Light to medium body, low carbonation, dry finish. Clean and refreshing, somewhat crude and keller, good weizen.

rozsoma (998) - Gyr, HUNGARY - APR 9, 2012
On tap at Andescher Dom in Munich. A real fruitful and refreshing hefe from the Andescher sortiment.

edpeg (904) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 9, 2012
Pours deep orange cloudy muddy. with white rocky head. Aroma is bananas, citrus and some grass, rather weak smell overall. Palate is slick, oily, mouthful and little tart. Carbonation is mouthful, soft and smooth. Taste is sweetish, wheat malty, yeasty, with hints of floral hops and dryness. Finish is medium dry, with sweet wheat malts and fruity with plums. Overall a rather average Hefeweizen, balance is not the top. Still drinkable.

Marko (5408) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 9, 2012
Andecher am Dom, presumably draft. Murky yellow-golden body, thick creamy white head. Light nose, dry banana, glue and cloves. Yeah, dry taste too, banana & glue. Not bad.

madquacker (1133) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2012
Orange colour and citrus flavours with a blunt slightly chemical lenghty grip. Lots of bubblegum and bananas, but seems a little synthetic.
